On Friday last week, Chadwick Boseman's Twitter account was used to confirm the death of the iconic actor. The post also talked about the  actor's perseverance and fighting spirit. Interestingly, the tribute tweet is now the most-liked Twitter post of all time, bumping a 2017 tweet from former President Barrack Obama. 

“Most liked Tweet ever.  A tribute fit for a King. #WakandaForever,” Twitter's official account stated on Sunday, referring to Boseman’s role as Marvel’s Black Panther. 

The record-breaking post was sent from Boseman's personal account, on Saturday morning at 3:11 a.m., the tweet had a smiling picture of the Wakanda actor in black and white and a statement from Boseman's family disclosing that the actor had passed away after battling colon cancer for four years. 

At the moment, the tweet from Boseman's account has been liked 7.2 million times. That's almost 3 million likes well over the long-held record by former president Barack Obama in his tweet sent in August 2017. 

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion," Obama's tweet reads alongside a picture of him standing below a small window smiling and starring at a diverse group of kids. That tweet has garnered 4.3 million likes. 

The actor died in the early hours of Friday at age 43 in his Los Angeles in the presence of his wife and family members, Boseman's publicist, Nicki Fioravante, told the Associated Press.

Since the announcement, tributes to Boseman has continued to flood social media from fans all around the world. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
